. for those of you who do not know me, i am a third-generation san francisco and, for better or for worse. it was a decision my parents made in high school to move to atherton. i ended up staying there until three years ago and have been active in civic activities ever since. it is important to be involved in civic and philanthropic activities. my day job -- and i am still very active in this job -- as an angel investor investing in bay area companies when they are what we call babies. these are start-ups that have two or three people, and sv angels funds those start-ups. one of the starters -- smartest decisions i made was only to invest in internet and software. we have invested in over 600 companies, many of them in the city of san francisco. for sure, today, we have set a record for any city in the country that has rallied and united the tech community to support collective, civic action. this never happened before. we are in the perfect storm with the election of mayor ed lee, to make this happen and to accomplish a lot. ed lee, as interim mayor, stepped up for the tech community, he
me called this meeting to order. it is the occasion when the mayor of san francisco is to take the oath of office. i believe this is probably the first major who has had all the other living mayor's as the 16 county of san francisco president for this swearing in.

. unemployment in san francisco went down dramatically, from 9.9% when i stood before you last january, to 7.8% in november. ladies and gentlemen, that means 17,000 san franciscans went back to work last year. [applause] while we can be proud of that, it is of little comfort to the single parent, recent graduate, or attorney veteran that find themselves out of work. we must do better. we will. we will do better, by continuing to attract good businesses and jobs. if we could take on the issues like pension reform, surely we could reform the tax structure to incentivize job creation, not discourage it. we must reform it. now is the time to finally get it done. small business is the backbone of our local economy and foundation of our vibrant neighborhoods. we can do more to help them. we will strengthen our office of small business and dramatically increase support for small businesses with loans and targeted investment in our commercial corridors. at the same time that we are recruiting those high-tech companies in san francisco, we need to make sure that our young people, as well of those in
francisco was hit early and hit hard by the devastation of hiv/aids, but san franciscans responded by developing a model of care that became the model for the ryan white care act. our city shows that, bourbons of hiv/aids work saves lives by keeping people healthy and productive. today, again, san francisco leads the way for compassionate, community-based care with the supplemental budget from mayor lee. ryan white funded initiatives are saving lives. declines in aids deaths are a direct result of the '30s and services that have been made more widely available through the ryan white act to large numbers of uninsured and underinsured people here that is why it was disappointing when the bush administration first proposed severe cuts, and that is why i have fought continued republican efforts to sustain these cuts. for several years, i worked successfully in a bipartisan way to roll back these destabilizing cuts and their potentially devastating impact. since 2007, we have restored nearly $21 million to san francisco systems of care. every step of the way in fighting these cuts, i ha

[applause] and we will only realize our true promise and potential when we serve the needs and aspirations of each and every one. i'll tell you one of the ways we can do that. we need to create a permanent source of revenue to fund the production of housing in san francisco. [applause] so that we remain a viable place to live and work for everyone at every level of the economic spectrum, not just low-income housing, but workforce housing as well for middle class families. we must never let up on our efforts to fight homelessness, move people off our streets and into supportive housing. we must continue to embrace innovative approaches to helping families and individuals find a permanent home. so this week i will direct the mayor's office of housing to convene a broad working group of housing advocates, city officials, developers and community leaders to develop a measure that we can place on the november ballot to create a permanent housing trust fund. san francisco must
city of san francisco. for sure, today, we have set a record for any city in the country that has rallied and united the tech community to support collective, civic action. this never happened before. we are in the perfect storm with the election of mayor ed lee, to make this happen and to accomplish a lot. ed lee, as interim mayor, stepped up for the tech community, he kept twitter in san francisco, got private stock option tech abolished, with the help of david chiu, and convened last april the ad hoc council, which i know he plans to reconvene as mayor. it was not easy to get ed lee to run for mayor. warren hellman and myself, and i know dianne feinstein and mayer brown as well, helped convince the end lead to run. it is one of the best meetings that warren and i have had, when we sat in his office for one hour, and we felt like we meant some headway, and we must have, because he is here. it is not a coincidence -- it is a coincidence, that the tech community it is following the example that warren hellman has set for this community. warren hellman and i were very close friends
to maintain it. it is one and the same. it is part of the bill. >> doesn't anybody here in san francisco care about the cost? all about the streets, the pavement is quite bad. i think it seems to be quite a port town. the same in boston. everywhere, the pavement, the maintenance of the roads are a lot worse than anywhere in europe. >> on that note, any other questions? >> hi, i work for the san francisco board of supervisors. a year or two ago, there is talk about changing the traffic laws so that cyclists would treat it red lights like stop signs and treat stop signs like yield signs. it was wondering about any changes in law? >> it has been suggested recently that cyclist conditions should be improved. one was that cyclists should be able to ride on a red light. that was a discussion. i do not think that we will get that in denmark, because you have to change the legislation opinion that cyclists, they already have the rights they need. they have the same rights as cars, and that is enough. we don't have this for cars. >> we also have european regulation on that. i should do the picture of
be speaker pelosi, but we have been very lucky in san francisco that we have had representatives -- representation in washington d.c. -- washington, d.c., that has advocated for the agency community, and has made san francisco an example for the rest of the country in how to treat that community. as scott indicated, we, in san francisco, have a lot to be brought up, and we should not go backwards. i want to thank mayor lee for the fact that when supervisor wiener and i went to him, there was no question, no hesitation. i think those of us or members of this lgbt community, we're very grateful to you and want you to know that we appreciate that commitment that you have made. i want to thank our director of public health who also was instrumental in making this possible, barbara garcia. i am very excited about our newly appointed lgbt supervisor, christina olague. i think this is her second -- second press conference as is supervisor cohen that might be her first co-sponsors of providing it is a testament to her commitment to our community that she is here. i think that it says the

to maximize voter participation to individuals who are more representative of san francisco. additionally, taxpayers have paid -- received $7 million through ranked-choice voting and we believe that money could be better used to support ongoing efforts such as those by supervisor avalos and supervisor campos to improve ranked-choice voting and improve education and outreach for people of color communities and immigrants whose access to vote is among the most vulnerable. supervisor kim: thank you. >> good afternoon. i am the voting rights coordinator with the asian law caucus. i would like to echo some of the sentiments spoken by my colleagues. ranked-choice voting is not necessarily a perfect system but it is a system that has allowed the broadest areas of our community to engage in democracy. ranked-choice voting has been in place since 2004 which is not that long ago. especially with changes to the election system in the wake elections are run. you have to see how they play out and you cannot be so quick to change the rules. especially not for voters and candidates. there is a broader c

families of san francisco, and before i go to those official members, i should identify some of your real friends. your it -- you are -- you are identified as the high-tech mayor in the country. i saw the 400,000 square feet had been acquired for 18 years, my sales force -- this is the second step in justifying your title, and i think people like ron conway, who was part of this -- as part of this effort -- and of course, the chinese chamber of commerce which was involved -- sending in notes, i suspect this. and so, there are other people who will be introduced. but she has to be on a time schedule, and i am already passed the time. i am about to present to you -- so that there can be the formal swearing-in, and then i will come back and finish up with the introductions, it's kind of important that you do this. they came to see you sworn in but also to be introduced.

[applause] there is no question that over the last several years, with the implosion of the national economy and the gasps of all of us in these high incidence of eviction for foreclosure, that there seems to be a real wrestling of what it is that we in san francisco can do. unfortunately, we are somewhat incapacitated by the empowering of addressing those that need help. by court order, the sheriff is responsible for facilitating evictions, even if it
